Mod is now a modder's resource. You may edit the textures and meshes from this mod for your own personal use and for release (this includes porting to other Bioware games). All I ask is that this mod is credited and linked.

Mod Update : Added Side Swept hair like in the picture above under "Optional Files". There are two version of the hairstyle, please view in gallery.

Mod Description
This is not a lore friendly mod. It edits the Skyhold outfit mesh for male elves and re-textures it to look like Thranduil's outfit from The Hobbit movie.
It's a personal project which I made for the purpose of using it during the Halamshiral quest line so, I will not be accepting any requests to make any changes to suit individual tastes.

Note: This mesh edit will not be compatible with the ones in Aravasia's Custom Body Models. It edits the same mesh. Do take note.

Mesh Edit comparison

What's different in the edited mesh compared to the vanilla?
a. The "bumps" on the chest and arms have been flatten.
b. The shoulders, chest and and hip area are slightly widened.
c. The arms are slightly widened and enlarged.
d. The hemline is made much longer so it looks like a long tunic.

Use DA:I Mod Manager v0.52 alpha to merge the daimod with Bioware's Official Patch. If you're new to modding check out the beginner's guide here on reddit.

Known Issues
1. Since it's not yet possible to import skinned meshes using the tools, the long hemline will cause clipping mostly in the front when walking/running (see pic below).

2. Also there is a seam visible in certain lighting and more obvious in some color options like gold (see pic below).

3. Mesh setting must be "Ultra" if not the mesh will revert back to vanilla.

4. I have not tested it with all armor upgrades since I don't use light armors, but I think it may not work with some. Just a heads up. You can see the pics of what it looks like in the image gallery. Also, the jammies can't  really be tinted except for the silver piping and some small parts.

Only download if you don't mind the issues highlighted.
